Viva La Musica Diamond Violin Shoulder Rest Light
The Concert Soloist's Choice, for so Many Reasons
Designed especially for the extreme demands of the concert soloist, European-made Viva la Musica Diamond shoulder rests combine comfort with practicality, freeing the artist to focus on the performance. The ergonomics start with fine solid wood carved into an S-shape, designed to distribute weight across the collarbone; this design significantly reduces fatigue, especially under grueling conditions. The patented Lateral Adjustment Clamping System, made from strong and flexible tool steel, absorbs stress instead of transferring it to the instrument, channeling stress away from the instrument itself; and they remain attached rather than sliding off when undergoing extreme performance conditions.
Your Viva Diamond shoulder rest is collapsible: Fold the feet after you're done playing, for easy storage in your case. And your Viva Diamond remembers your settings -- when you unfold the feet and place your Viva Diamond on your violin, you will not need to adjust it again.
The Viva la Musica Diamond shoulder rest is available in your choice of finishes: Light maple, dark maple, and walnut, and black or gold-plated foot hardware.

The Artist’s Shoulder Rest
Designed by a professional violinist and manufactured in Europe to the highest standards, Viva la Musica shoulder rests solve violinists’ and violists’ problems beautifully. The Viva la Musica product line is broad, serving the needs of beginners, intermediate players and world-class violin soloists. Meticulous attention to detail, such as the design of the feet and multi-adjustability functionality.

Made without compromise from a variety of high quality materials: tool steel, resins and fine woods.
Ratings & Reviews
My posture is bad, and tend to be a little "animated", so the shoulder rests I've had before always seem to shift/slide or get out of position. Brought my violin to Shar, and Tereza (as a customer/consumer, I would say that she provides ABSOLUTELY the best service in any industry) laid out many options. She offered opinions, but as usual gave me time to try each one out in their demo room. Obviously eventually settled on this one. Not only is this thing beautiful (grained wood: light or dark options to match your instrument), it has so many different angles and positions you could adjust. Once I got settled in, I've found it stayed securely in every way no matter how much I varied position/pressure while playing. It is light and compact. The grips/legs an be folded down if there there is not much room in your case.
My Diamond shoulder rest is the most beautifully designed rest I've ever owned. It's gorgeous.
Great shoulder rest!
1) The positioning is unlike your common shoulder rest. It doesn't cover or sit on the shoulder but sits on or nearer the collar bone, which is exactly what I was looking for. 2) It's light weight and seems well made (though I haven't had it long). 3) It's the most beautiful shoulder rest I've ever had, which is definitely last on the list but worth mentioning.
